Method

Red Velvet Pancakes 7 Steps

  • Step 1

    Mix your dry ingredients together in a bowl: flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder.

  • Step 2

    Sift your dry ingredients and set aside.

  • Step 3

    In a separate bowl, mix your wet ingredients, beat your eggs, add milk, melted butter, vanilla and some red food colouring.

  • Step 4

    Combine wet and dry ingredients together and mix, adding more food colouring to achieve desired red colour. Note: gel food colouring is 'stronger' than liquid food colour, you often need less of it and it tends to bleed less in cooked food.

  • Step 5

    Your pancake batter may be thick and lumpy and this is okay -- it is best not to overmix. Remember, the thicker your pancake batter, the fluffier the finished pancake will be, the thinner your batter, the flatter your pancakes will be. You can adjust thickness of your batter by adding more or less milk. Let the batter sit for 5-7 minutes before beginning to fry.

  • Step 6

    To fry, scoop pancake batter into a heated frying pan with melted butter or oil and cook on low-medium until you start to see bubbles form. Remember the batter should make about 4 pancakes so divide accordingly.

  • Step 7

    Flip pancakes and cook on low-medium until pancakes are lightly browned and cooked through.

Cream Cheese Topping 3 Steps

  • Step 1

    In a bowl, whisk softened butter and cream cheese until smooth.

  • Step 2

    Add in your powdered sugar and cream and whisk until smooth.

  • Step 3

    Add vanilla, mix well and serve with pancakes.
